Reade Me If You Live In Texas And You Hate Front Liscense Plates

http://www.petitiononline.com/txplate/petition.html

If you go to this website, it is a petition to abolish front liscense plates in the state of Texas. Last time I checked there were like 5000 people on it. Tell all your friends.

Yeah some laws they have really suck. They have the same thing here in Saskatchewan, Canada. You have to have two license plates.

Sorta on the same topic here but what is up with the window tint laws down there in the states. I read some posts on here with people saying they can't have more than a certain percentage of tint on their windows. Are the laws only for the drivers and passenger side front windows? There are similar laws here but you can have 5% all around except the front door windows and front window. Just curious....

I think cars look way better without a plate. Unless the cops are chasing you while you are driving in reverse, its pointless to have a front plate.

but what is up with the window tint laws down there in the states.
Here's a couple links:

Back on topic:
Good luck in your "plight".
I don't like front plates either.
Have there been any attempts at removing the plates that have passed?

Yeah, good luck.
I'm glad that I'm in one of those states that don't require a front plate. I think it looks awful.

It's like that out here in Cali. There are cars that look like complete shit with a front license plate. That's what happens when hippies run your state!
